This book opens with the main character, Daniel, thrown into the middle of action and mystery and doesn't let up until it ends. It grabbed my attention from page one (well done Ms Eason!) and kept me guessing at who the bad guy was (which totally surprised me) the whole time. This was a clean read that is appropriate for any age. Good as a stand alone, yet part of the Elite Guardians series. I really enjoyed the archaeological aspect of this book and reading about the historical items found, this has always intrigued me and it was fun to see new life given to these lost items.
